Antiviral computer-aided drug design By DIMITRIOS VLACHAKIS
Paperback: $45.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
More than 170 million people worldwide are currently chronically infected with the Hepatitis C virus. Similarly, Dengue fever infects 50 million per year in central Africa. It is the same story for... More > so many other viruses that are members of the flaviviridae family. Disproportionally to the severity of an infection with almost all members of Flaviviridae, no specific antiviral therapy is available today. There are drugs neither for the treatment nor for the prevention upon infection. Scientists have isolated various proteins and extensively study some of them in an attempt to get information that will eventually be combined to a strategy against the viruses. Herein, an effort is made to describe the current status of antiviral research within flaviviridae, homology modelling and structure based drug design techniques that may soon lead to new generation of stratagems against flaviviridae. Finally, insights into novel technologies in drug design technology are provided.< Less
Computer-Aided Reasoning: An Approach By Matt Kaufmann, Panagiotis Manolios, J Moore
Paperback: $22.12

Computer-Aided Reasoning: An Approach is a textbook introduction to computer-aided reasoning. It can be used in graduate and undergraduate courses on software engineering or formal methods. It is... More > also suitable in conjunction with other books in courses on hardware design, discrete mathematics, and theory. It is also appropriate as a reference for business and industry. In this book we present: * A practical functional programming language closely related to Common Lisp; * A formal logic in which defined functions correspond to axioms; * The computer-aided reasoning system ACL2, which includes mechanical support for the proof process. ACL2 is part of the Boyer-Moore family of theorem provers, for which its authors have received the 2005 ACM Software System Award. ACL2 has been successfully applied to projects of commercial interest, including hardware and software verification. Approximately 140 exercises are distributed throughout the book.< Less
Computer-aided drug design. The HCV family example. By Dimitrios Vlachakis
Hardcover: $28.97
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Hepatitis C and Dengue viruses belong to the family of Flaviviridae. Viruses in this family are enveloped, have positive-sense RNA and are responsible for a variety of life threatening diseases.... More > Hepatitis C virus is the major etiological agent of post-transfusion hepatitis worldwide. An estimated 3 % of the world's population is infected with HCV according to the World Health Organization. Infection with HCV will most regularly result in chronic hepatitis, which leads to liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma and liver failure. Dengue is currently the most important viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes afflicting humans the world context. Clinical symptoms range from mild fevers to a severe haemorrhagic disease. To date neither specific antiviral treatments exist nor are there any vaccines available for both infections. Thus there is an urgent need for new therapies.< Less
